Profile

Dallas has a way of absorbing its own cultural history — obscuring, trivializing  or just plain forgetting the things that have come before. As a result, we flounder for a sense of continuity with the past, to build on what has been done before rather than continually starting anew. There are dozens of examples — kinds of galleries or collectives, musical movements, urbanism projects, etc. —  but Dallas’ punk scene is worth its own exploration. This city was a very different place when the handful of punks began kicking shins, bashing guitars, and generally knocking the Stetsons off this city’s image. So we're glad to see a gallery celebrating the punks of yesteryear; we hope the punks of today show up.
